New TV Spot and Featurette for Dylan Dog: Dead of Night
04.12.11 by Ryan
This summer is filled with comic book movie releases like Thor and Green Lantern. But, while the Norse warrior and his May release is kicking off "superhero summer," director Kevin Munroe's comic book adaptation of Dylan Dog: Dead of Night is trying to get a jump on the summer, opening at the tail end of April.
Based on the Italian comic book Dylan Dog created by Tiziano Sclavi, the movie stars Brandon Routh as the title character, an investigator whose specialty is the undead and the supernatural. Dylan takes on a case where he must deal with zombies, vampires, werewolves, and a guardian from Hell. Aiding him is undead assistant Marcus, played by Routh's Superman Returns co-star Sam Huntington.
A recent featurette helped explain to the comic book's legion of fans why Munroe and screenwriters Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Dean Donnelly changed the location from the comic book's London to the movie's New Orleans. For those unfamiliar with the comic book, the new TV spot explains what the movie is about.
Also released is another featurette, this time concentrating on Huntington's character and how the actor landed the role next to Routh, who are good friends in real life as well.
Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, which co-stars Taye Diggs and Anita Briem, has already opened in Italy.
